I’m about to shatter your impressions of how you perceive models.  Please do not read on if you want to believe that all models are perfect in every single way. Yes I thought you may want to read on… cheeky. This is an account of what really happened when I shot this TV commercial.  A ‘behind the scenes special’ if you please.
